but in reality if you can't cover the whole city would do a lot of things that one swat team can never be decisive and that is where we found ourselves, significant evolution, where we began to change. >> in somalia, the task force ranger had been there a month or two before the big battle that i wrote about and during that period they launched six so the path, the pace was intelligence gathering, finding targets, planning and operations, once that intelligence came together, launching a rage . describe what tempo means >> you get into and make a decision and set criteria to lunch when the criteria come. it is a pretty centralized, pretty deliberate process. when we got in iraq we were all originally doing that and have this precise thing and we found we were having an effect that very narrow affect, very slow affect and when we would go to pick up an individual that may or may not be a fight. if we capture him and his computer and his phone, capture all those things, but one of our small forces around the country would do the operation, might take a day or two to send the individual b
standing in the rubble of city hall was something. -- >> the people there who had been in shelters for almost a month were very upset that the war ended. there what it finished. will live in shelters for three months. this will be the end of it, but his idea was that burns increase . we rebuilt and we prepared for the next time because someday we will be the gateway to israeli commando lebanese will come and who will have dinner together. that is our goal. we want to be the gateway to the north. he was all about building. in rebuilding. planting. trees are a very big deal and is well. the only country in the world that has more trees at the turn of the 25th century than it had at the beginning of the 20th century. and everybody pleasantries. every time a turnaround. the first thing they do is go out and plant trees. more trees. that is what he talked about. it is a defiance of what it is also a spirit of bill the and life. people were sorry the war ended when it did, and everyone knew it ended badly. they wanted to be able to have peace and live their lives again. that's what they
